Sweet and Sour Vegetables and Tofu by clickman

Category: Main Dishes - Other

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.




1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root

4 tablespoons brown sugar

6 tablespoons white vinegar

3 tablespoons tamari soy sauce

1/4 cup tomato sauce

2 packages extra firm tofu, cubed

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 cups sliced onions

2 tablespoons minced ginger root

2 medium carrots, diagonally sliced

1/2 pound string beans, cut in 3-inch pieces

1 red or green pepper, sliced

2 cups sliced mushrooms

2 cups zucchini rounds

3/4 cup fresh or canned pineapple, in chunks

1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed into 1/2 cup water

2 scallions, chopped

Corriander Powder



Mix all the sauce ingredients first, and chop/cube/mince/etc. all the ingredients, and set everything aside. In a wok, or a very large pan, heat the vegetable oil and then put the onions and ginger in. Cook till the onions are translucent. Then add the carrots, and cook for two minutes. Next, add the string beans and peppers, and cook for another two minutes. Finally, add the mushrooms and zucchini and cook for two more minutes.

Then lower the heat, and cover the wok or pan and let it cook till the vegetables are somewhat crisp. Then add the tofu, sauce, and pineapple, and the cornstarch mixed with water. Cook for 3-4 more minutes.

Additional comments:


This can be served over rice, or alone. Top with scallions, and spice with corriander powder. Hot chili oil can be added near the end if you like things hot and spicy.
